WAEC subject combination (requirements) for Metallurgical Engineering
The subjects needed to study Metallurgical Engineering in WAEC must contain five (5) credit. This subject combination is also applicable to NECO AND GCE… The required WAEC subject combination (O level requirement) for Metallurgical Engineering must include
- English Language
- Any other Science subject
- A trade subject
Before you consider the O level requirement for this course, it is good you know what this course is all about. Metallurgy is a domain of materials science that studies the physical and chemical behaviour of metallic elements, their intermetallic compounds and their mixtures called alloys. Metal plays a vital role in almost every aspect of modern life.
It also encompasses the study of exotic material, pure and combined which has application in various industries. It is one of the most important branches of engineering as modern applications nowadays require a material with high strength and low weight along with other factors.
Metallurgical Engineers extract, refine and recycle metals. They solve problems such as reducing corrosion, maintaining heat levels and increasing the strength of the product. They help develop or improve metals that are used in the healthcare, transportation, defence and entertainment industry.
The work of a metallurgical engineer impacts other engineering fields. They develop core materials that can enhance the function of many products and systems.
The three main branches of the Metallurgical Engineering Course are physical metallurgy, extractive metallurgy and mineral processing. Physical metallurgy deals with problem-solving i.e. development of metallic alloys needed for different types of manufacturing and construction. Extractive metallurgy involves extracting metal from ore. Mineral processing involves gathering mineral products from the earth’s crust.
Courses under Metallurgy Engineering are:
- Basic Hydrometallurgy
- Basic Physical Metallurgy
- Basic Pyrometallurgy
- Heat treatment of steels
- Literature survey
- Mechanical metallurgy
- Metallurgical analysis
- Minerals processing
- Physical metallurgy
- Refractory materials
- Welding metallurgy.
JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Metallurgical Engineering
Knowing JAMB subjects for Metallurgical Engineering is not enough. You should aim for a score of 180 – 200 and above in JAMB UTME to be on a safe side (Just a piece of advice) because anything short of that may deny you of Admission/Post UTME. Of course, if you have a score below 180, you can consider College of Education or Polytechnic… Please note – JAMB is not the only option for admission. If you’re having troubles JAMB UTME maybe it’s time you pass through IJBM, JUBEB, ND, HND or Predegree!..
JAMB UTME subject combinations (subjects to write in jamb) to study Metallurgical Engineering are:
Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Metallurgical Engineering
‘A’ level passes in any two of Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry
If for some reasons you are not satisfied or cannot meet up with this admission requirement that is the subject combination above, perhaps you should consider other Metallurgical Engineering similar courses or take a look at Polytechnic or College of Education related courses subject requirements. You can also study online with a foreign university right from your bedroom or apply for a scholarship to study abroad. Education is now a choice. And please before you make a decision on which University to choose, please consider
- The Fees
- The Distance
- The Environment
- The Degree Certificate
- Vulnerability to Strike
- Acceptable O Level and A-level Result
- Academic Calendar
This is the list of Universities offering Metallurgical Engineering in Nigeria
According to 2022 JAMB Brochure, only Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria offer Metallurgical Engineering
Cut-off Mark for Metallurgical Engineering course
The cut-off mark for Metallurgical Engineering 180. You can check these universities JAMB UTME cut off marks here. Metallurgical Engineering is a good course and you can also check the top best engineering courses. This should not influence you. Follow your heart or seek my counsel.
Metallurgical Engineering is how many years course and under which faculty?
Depending on your mode of entry, Metallurgical Engineering is a three to four years course in Nigeria. According to JAMB, Metallurgical Engineering is under Faculty of Agriculture but may be under a different faculty in some universities.
Can a commercial or art student study Metallurgical Engineering?
No! Metallurgical Engineering is a pure science course and not suitable for commercial or art students. But if you have the required subject combination in your O level result, you can go for it if that is the course you desire to study. If you’re still in secondary school, you may find it difficult to change subjects during WAEC registration because your schools may go against it. The alternative way to write the required subjects combination for Metallurgical Engineering is through GCE
Where can I work with a Degree in Metallurgical Engineering
I believe you now know the subjects required to study Metallurgical Engineering. I urge you to also find out where you can work with the degree. Please take your time to read The Act of Getting a Job – so you would know what you’re up against after graduating.
Metallurgical engineers can seek employment in metal and metal extraction companies. They can also opt for teaching positions in universities and colleges. A metallurgical engineer can take up any of the following profiles like Researcher, Metallurgist, Welding Engineer, Plant Equipment Engineer, Ballistics Engineer, Quality Planning Engineer, Senior Process Engineer, Vendor Development Engineer etc.
Special Consideration (waiver)
The SSCE O level and A-level subjects needed to study Metallurgical Engineering have been listed above. Some Universities may accept D7 or E8 in some a compulsory subject instead of Credit. And some may accept or reject two sittings. That is combinations of WAEC, NECO, or GCE results. You will know more when you take a look at the special consideration (waiver) for this course.
